July is here and so is a new round of geeky TV. Set your recorders and check out what is new and returning for the month.
Geeks Who Drink (Syfy 11:00 PM) – Zachary Levi, star of NBC’s Chuck and upcoming Heroes Reborn, is the executive producer and host of Geeks Who Drink.

Each team consists of three players – a celebrity team captain and two trivia pros. After three rounds of raucous game-play and (mostly) friendly competition, the winning team will earn bragging rights, a spot on the Geeks Who Drink leader-board and a bevy of prizes to geek out over.
